The Lauren Kiefer Memorial Foundation will be hosting their annual 5k walk today, June 25, 2011 at 9AM. The walk will be held on the grounds and around Willowbrook High School, Villa Park, Illinois. The family and friends of Lauren started this 5k walk to honor the memory of Lauren Kiefer, she was taken too soon. In December of 2006 Lauren was killed by a childhood friend in her parent’s home. She had a bright future ahead of her. Lauren’s love for fitness is what inspired the idea of having the 5K. The money that is raised from the 5K goes towards helping other non-profit organizations, families in need and student scholarships for seniors who attend Willowbrook High School. By doing this walk, family and friends are able to let her spirit live on in love, in service and in fun. They have year around events to raise money and celebrate her memory. If you are interested in the foundation, take a look at their website and find out how you can get involved.
B.M.M.O. Consulting will be participating in this walk today with Fleet Feet, Elmhurst. Wish us luck! Cherish life, you never know when someone’s is going to end.
